Ron's Recap: September 13, 2019  

9-11 picture for e-update.jpg (1) 

This week, we solemnly remembered that terrible day eighteen years ago, when almost 3,000 Americans died in the most deadly attack on American soil. While we have our differences, we are all united as one nation. 

“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.” — President George W. Bush at the Pentagon in 2008.  

 Rep. Tusler Visits Mulberry Lane Farm

Recently, I had a ton of fun with my wife Devon and my daughter Madeline when we went to Mulberry Lane Farm. For those who do not know, Mulberry Lane Farm is a petting farm where people of all ages can interact and learn about farm animals through “hands-on” group and self-guided tours.

During our visit, we got to milk “Cookie the cow," pet the piglets, horses, bunnies, and more. Madeline even rode on a pony for the first time!

We loved our time at Mulberry Lane Farm and are very thankful to Farmer Bonnie and all the staff at Mulberry Lane Farm for having me and my family at the farm! To see the highlights from our visit, click here or on the picture below.

 Preparedness in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, we hope for the best, and prepare for the worst when it comes to weather. September is Preparedness Month in Wisconsin. This is an excellent opportunity to make sure that you and your family are ready in case of emergency. Taking simple, forward thinking steps could help save your life and your loved ones. 

Here are some simple steps you can take to make sure you are ready: 

  • Review your insurance policy to make sure you have adequate coverage for your home and other property. Remember that most policies do not cover flood damage, which will typically require its own policy.
  • Have copies of important financial and personal documents in a safe location. Create digital backups that can be stored online in a secure account.
  • Build up your savings. During a disaster, you may need a reserve of money available if you are forced to leave your home, are unable to work, or are waiting for an insurance payment.
  • Write a family emergency plan in the event a disaster or emergency forces you to remain at home for several days, or if you were forced to leave the area quickly. Practice the plan.
  • Create a family communications plan, which includes important contacts to notify in an emergency. Be sure to include an out-of-town contact, such as a family member or close friend.
  • Make a disaster kit that includes key supplies, such as water, non-perishable foods, a first aid kit, and any medications you are taking. Don’t forget to include supplies for your pets!
  • Talk to your children about what to do during an emergency at home, school, or when they are away. Make sure they know who to contact and identify a safe meeting place.

High School Fall Sports

High School Sports are in full swing! Make sure to support your local high school sports teams as they compete against other area teams. 

One of the goals of high school athletics is learning lifetime values. Sportsmanship is one such value that makes these games an educational experience. Please remember to set a good example and exhibit a respectful behavior towards all when attending any high school sporting event.

To find times and locations for specific sports, please click the applicable link(s) below. For any school not listed, please click here to find more information. 

Record Rainy Day Fund

Legislative Republicans understand the importance of saving for a rainy day. The Budget Stabilization (Rainy Day) Fund will soon top $649 million. It is wise to save while the economy is strong in the event of an economic downturn. It is an excellent example of how we practice preparedness in Wisconsin Government!
